A little Catholic Humour

 A pastor went out one Saturday to visit his church members. At one house it was obvious that someone was home, but nobody came to the door even though the pastor had knocked several times. Finally, the pastor took out his card and wrote “Revelations 3:20” on the back of it and stuck it in the door. {Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and opens the door, I will come in to him and dine with him and him with me.} The next day, the card turned up in the collection plate. Below the pastor’s message was the notation “Genesis 3:10”. {I heard your voice in the garden, and I was afraid because I was naked, and I hid myself.}

Fr. Tim Notes:
1) As we approach the end of the Church’s liturgical year, our readings start to focus our attention to that ‘big’ end when Christ is to return in glory and we all face our final judgment. For many people, this coming moment strikes fear and dread into their hearts. For Christians who have lived and loved to the best of their abilities as God demands of us, it should be a moment that brings joy and hope to mind for it will be the time when we will be both rewarded for our good works and reunited with those we loved in life who did the same. How do look at ‘the end of the world’? Is it a time of great fear or joy in your heart? If it’s the former then perhaps this series of ‘end of time’ readings is an opportunity for us to review how we have loved, lived, and believed so as to change our ways while we still have time.

2) We begin our Eucharistic Adoration program this coming week in Chapeau. It will run from 10:30 am to 4 pm. each Tuesday in the sacristy, and Wednesday in the church proper until we complete our current video study on the Eucharist at which time the adoration will be in the sacristy on both days. You can also come to Sheenboro each Saturday morning from 9 am to 11 am to spend some time in prayer before the exposed Blessed Sacrament. The program in St. Joseph’s will begin in a week or two on Thursday and Friday.

3) Regarding the children’s catechism program: If your child still has not picked up their required workbooks for their class you can obtain it from Pauline in the parish office. As it has been, the cost remains $10.00. Also, if your child has not yet been registered or didn’t attend the first session last weekend, they can still participate if they obtain their workbook and attend the next class on the first Sunday in December. REMEMBER – Mass attendance is a REQUIRED component of the program and children must get their attendance sheet signed after Mass in the sacristy.

4) Lindsay Hearty, daughter of Wrangler Hearty is writing a book of anecdotes, jokes, and stories about her father and is looking for people to contribute any relevant material. If you have something to contribute you can email it to her at A portion of the proceeds are to go Pontiac Minor hockey teams.
